Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
This is a stand-up comedy show for people who like stand-up comedy shows by a man that does stand-up comedy.
Depending on your opinion, that man is either “a comedian on the up” (The Times), “a comedian I’ve never heard of” (Audience Member) or “a very clever boy” (Nish Kumar)
You may have watched Nish support Milton Jones or David O’Doherty, or seen him on Comedy Central’s The Alternative Comedy Experiencecurated by Stewart Lee, Live at the Comedy Storeand Stand up Central. Or BBC 3’s, Live at the Edinburgh Festival and Sweat the Small Stuff.
Nish has also been on The Josh Widdicombe Showon XFM, BBC Radio 4 on The Now Show and more recently was the host of BBC Radio 4 Extra Newsjack.
Alternatively you could have just sat next to him at Nandos.
‘A laughter-filled hour.’
‘A tight, smart set from a comic who confesses self-absorption while engaging expansively with the way we live now.’
‘A truly impressive piece of stand-up.’
‘With his combination of book smarts, righteous passion and sardonic wit, Nish Kumar is the Asian answer to John Oliver.’
